I went on a bit of a thrifting binge on Friday (it's feast or famine, I swear!) and found this pretty dress in the process. It has such a lovely Prada-like print that I couldn't leave it all by its lonesome on the rack. I also think it might be the first babydoll dress I've owned since, like, the '90s.

Plaguing me weeks: I must have an awesome pair of high-heeled loafers. How perfect would they be with this dress?

PS I'd like to thank fellow DC blogger, Miranda, for the award!

  24. Amazing dress. I love when the thrift store is good to me. I too am looking for the perfect pair of high heeled oxfords. I am not a fan of the flat oxfords as I don't think they would move smoothly into my wardrobe but I am a fan of the high heeled version. I'll let you know if I find a good pair.

  31. high heeled loafers would be divine! I've been coveting a certain pair of marc jacobs recently *sigh* one can dream. but those shoes are pretty awesome too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ooh, pretty! I like that your shoes compliment your dress perfectly without being overly matchy-matchy. Do you thrift shop mostly in DC? I haven't ventured to any shops in DC, but I did go to the Goodwill in Bethesda/Rockville(??) off of Randolph Road, and I'm going to try the Value Village or something off of Viers Mill Rd and Randolph, if you know where I'm talking about. :D
